Canker sores: These, if that is what you really have, are of unknown cause and will not respond to antibiotics. If your doctor was giving you Flonase it suggest they were treating something other than the sore on the uvula. You might want to discuss this with them and if not satisfied, get a second opinion, possibly from an ENT doctor.

May be a viral ulcer: This may be a viral ulcer that may take more time to go away, gargle with warm water and salt.

Wait: A few days and go back to see your doctor. Gargles with antibiotics will help. Clohexidine.12%.
